    • in reply to: Port 80 permanently blocked – how to unblock? #2507785

      No, my internet connection is not shared, nothing external is connected neither through USB, ethernet cable nor WiFi. Ill remember to check this next time someone has this issue.
      I tried Paul T’s solution and it works for me. Thanks for support anyway.

      Yes, perfect, re-setting the port to 81 works and Apache service is started now.

      Its for testing purposes, so this solution is acceptable to me. Thanks a lot for swift aswers, friends! Helped me a lot.

      Maybe sometimes, not sure. I dont install updates immediatelly after they are released. With simple dnfdragora tool, I can install updates which I need, and Install them when I need.

      So only bugs already being used by bad guys should be patched?
      It makes more sense to be proactive and prevent malicious use.

      Its hard to create meaningful answer, when replying to such knowledgeable people as you are. You know way more than I do, which I value very much. I thank for the ZDI articles, I didnt know exact process and timelines of fixing bugs.

      Now I can uderstand, that Microsoft is “pushed” into fixing those bugs due to some given timeline. Some is easy to fix, some is very complex to fix (print nightmare). We cant use “one size fits all” here. Should only exploited vulnerability be fixed? Maybe, but maybe some require proactive attitude, cause they are more likely to be exploited. But the ammount of updates is excessive (not only in Microsoft products) and not properly tested, and I stand by my opinion. And it can break a lot of systems, change settings people did, …

      From my angle of view (and experience), successfull way is not to complete task, just because you need to do “check” in your monthly checklist. And I bet this happens a lot, not only in Microsoft.

      Healthy attitude, when somebody is complaining, is to take step back and ask yourself: “is it really the way I see it, or may it be otherwise?”

      I did this with my post here. And I listen to what you say, but I still believe, that you can see, what Im talking about.

      Realeasing patches for OS and for Office this often, may be not sustainable.

      Interesting is, that Apple and its closed ecosystem is much much safer. Linux may be the most dangerous of all three platforms here. Windows is trying to emulate and promise something that is simply not achievable, by my opinion.

      At home I am happy with my GNU/Linux distro, nothing disturbs me, forces me to restarts, slows down my computer nor uses 70% of download bandwidth to download another update.

      Agreed, the topic should be moved to rant, because thats is what it really is. I do not critise the subscription Office model here. I criticise the adware built into paid software.

      But, on the principle of good faith, I will presume that what you are actually asking for is for Microsoft to do better QA testing for their patches. Patches remain necessary for ensuring the security of Windows, but they should install easily and be thoroughly tested for any bugs or issues. That way, installing patches is painless and won’t result in functionality being inexplicably broken.

      Im thinking about your post and it makes good points. Even criticising my post, which I humbly accept. Ill try to explain more what makes me crazy.

      Promise to make our computers safer shouldnt bring the risk of braking my computer. Yes, many vulnerabilities are discovered and repaired with each patch, but do you also look, if those vulnerabilies are exploted in the wild? Or is it just a hypothetical situation? Not all of them can be exploited.
      I also think, that some vulnerabilities can be introduced with new functions, because they bring new attack vectors and ITS NOT PROPERLY tested.

      I understand the fundament of making system safer. But most of PC infections comes from the malicious links, adult movie sites and opening fake attachments. Its user behavior that determinates the risk of “unsecure system”.
      If we invest more in user education, it could lower the number of risks. If you put mindlessly your credit card number on random webpage, of course you will lose your money. Why should other users suffer then? Is this what “secure system” all about? Keeping our money safe? Keeping our data safe?

      Lipstick on a pig is good comparsion. Look at Windows 11. Its good old Windows that can be sold as new OS.

      Thanks, Alex. I understand your point. But the functionality and milions of bugs every month/week proves my statement.

      Its not my duty to betatest something I bought for 100 EUR approximately.

      Why to pay something, that I can delagate to unaware users? Sad thought. Also dont forget to make all those features opt-out, so users will send telemetry unintentionally.

      I respect your opinion, but my experience is different.

    • in reply to: Printing issue #2435849

      Disconnect the printer.
      Then run (win+R):

      printmanagement.msc

      There will be listed installed printers. Remove unwanted printed and then try to plug it in again. If it does not appear in the printers list, click the “Add printer” button and try to install properly.

    • PST is local file used to store old messages locally, so they do not eat server resources.
      Im not sure, if you can “upload” your existing PST into the outlook web-based application.
      I am sure you can add the PST file into your desktop Office 365 through profile properities, but even after that, if I log into the web-based Office 365 (portal.office.com), I cannot see the PST archive.

      My question is, why not use the desktop reliable version installed on your computer? Do you need to access the PST from different PCs? The PST should be uploaded onto cloud somehow, cant see the way how to do this in my account administration.

      My workaround would be:
      – Install desktop Outlook.
      – Map the PST.
      – Create new folder inside your active mailbox.
      – Copy all messages from the archive into your new folder.
      – Your mails will be synchronised to cloud and accessible from everywhere, although your mailbox will be much much bigger.

    • in reply to: How Windows feature releases have changed #2435839

      ALthough Windows 10 has brought some significant and usefull changes, its still the same ol’ song.

      I know backwards compatibility is important, but as we can see, computer users are amazing animal species, that can get use to everything Microsoft releases.

      I would really wellcome, if Windows will intorduce something complete and usable. For example, I really dislike more than 7 years of slowly migrating into “new control panel”. While the flat registry file remain from Windows NT (alias “New Technology”).

    • in reply to: Registry backups: Yea or nay? #2435351

      Registry backup is useful when experimenting and troubleshooting, but I really never used registry backup more than few times in two decades. Its somehow usefull to backup one certain branch of registry, when changing few values, to remember, what original values were. I never used whole registry backup for restoring those values.

    • in reply to: MS-DEFCON 4: A very complicated patching month #2421298

      You can use WUSHOWHIDE.diagcab tool to hide pending updates, that you dont want to install.

      Download the the tool from majorgeeks, for example. There is instructional video on the page, so you will know how to do that. Its quite simple.

    • Try this:
      https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-kb5008212-windows-security-update-breaks-outlook-search/

      Unistalling update seems to solve the issue. Also you can try to create one REG key as explained in the article.

      Sometimes, deleting outdated credentials in windows “Credential manager” helps. Delete everything that containd “Office16” stored in the credential manager.

    • Thank you, interesting reading.

      An application that is downloaded from the Play Store is supposed to be the latest version of it. If the app asks for update permission at the first run, immediately after its installation, it is suspicious.

      Always use 2FA (SMS token for confirming payments), even if it bothers you! Its better to be safe than sorry.

      Yes, that is how brains work, brain is searching for patterns he knows. Typical example could be clouds, also scarecrows who prove that animal brain has the same capabilities as ours. Star constellations maybe too.

      I like the mystery in it, that until we reach the rock, it could be anything! Its a schroedinger rock! 🙂
